Glossary of Cash Transfer Programming (CTP) Terminology
In the period since the CALP Network produced its first glossary in 2011, the scale and variety of cash transfer programming (CTP) has expanded significantly, and brought the engagement of a wider and more diverse community of practice. These changes have also been reflected in an evolving understanding and use of some definitions, and the introduction of multiple new terms into the cash transfer programming lexicon. This updated the CALP Network glossary has been compiled to capture these changes, with
the intention of providing clarity and to encourage the harmonised use and common understanding of CTP terminology. It should be noted that these definitions are intended for application in relation to CTP in humanitarian programming contexts, and may not reflect how some terms are understood in other contexts or by other audiences.
